There are some people who believe the USA is the modern Babylon?
Some of their reasoning is not really “reasoning”, but maybe they are on to something.
Babylon was the big bad empire in the last days of the Judean kings.
Today, the USA is the undisputed military power – and some of its detractors consider it the big bad empire – or worse.
Who can make war with the beast?
The USA has a strong interest in Israel – could they end up sending troops there?
You can make a case for the USA being the beast of Revelation.
The problem you run into, is who is the false prophet? There are so many to choose from – and that is just in the COGs. There are also so many other contenders.
Now maybe you are wondering about the miraculous powers of the false prophet.
Well, wonder no more. With today’s technology and some smart tech, you too can call down fire from heaven. The USA does it all the time already with its smart bombs.
Having drone aircraft rain down fire is an easy one for people with the right tech.
Now, we are still left with the two witnesses – two people with an Internet connection broadcasting live from Jerusalem, studying the weather forecasts for droughts and floods, and local news for fires.
Could this scenario be true?No idea, but the COGs need a new prophecy line to get some excitement and recruits with money.
